    Does anyone know what color is caca/fecis before it leaves our digestive tract and enters the anus? I thought it was so funny when my wife told me.

    Sure he did, but in the book (I just read it last weekend) Marla and Tyler were constantly calling each other human waste and other classy obsenities.

    As I read this you know the answer. So what is the answer? I really don't want to think about this anymore. :wink:

    I will guess yellow and green.

    Good guess, its yellow inside your colon but as it exits due to lack of water it changes color to what we know of it today. by the way, as we reach 40yrs old everyone should have a colonoscopy dont for early signs of cancer and its sometimes good to have your colon flushed if your doctor thinks it may be causing you to be fatigued.

    Just some FYI type stuff, i found it interesting. kinda like blood. what color is it really?

    it comes in shades of red from the well known blood red to a darker magenta color. the playground idea that blood is blue until it touches oxygen holds little water. it is a purpler shade in the viens that lead into the heart because the oxygen has been saturated, but at no point is it actually blue.

    just FYI...
